Olympic Trials: Men's 200m

Wallace Spearmon, Maurice Mitchell, and Isiah Young Finish Top 3, Advance to London

Wallace Spearmon took control of the race off the turn, and hit his NOS button to blow everyone out of the water. Spearmon's 19.82 (wind 2.3m/s = not legal) was really, really fast, and Mitchell/Young came through at 20.14 and 20.16. Olympians Doc Patton and Shawn Crawford were not able to put their race together.

Will Spearmon be able to take down the Jamaican powerhouse of Yohan Blake and Usain Bolt?
